Gentlemen of Cricket
A great culmination of the term was at cricket on Saturday at The Southport School. I was doing a stint as umpire when the coach from the other side approached me for a chat. This was the second time we had played TSS during the season and he said that he and other coaches at the school had commented on the sportsmanlike, yet competitive attitudes of our boys. This type of feedback is not rare and is a reflection of the wonderful boys we have at our College and a great way to end Term 1!

As we come to the end of another term I would like to thank all the staff involved in running our sporting program at the College. Without their generosity, enthusiasm, commitment, creativity and expertise, we would not be able to run the great programs that we do. For a full list of sports in Term 2 and the training schedule please see the link below.
Enjoy a well earned break and see you in Term 2.
Mr Dave Capra, Head of Sport and Activities
